(p.198) 9 India’s East and Southeast Asia Policy
Does the Elephant Dance?

David M. Malone

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines India’s policy towards the rest of the East and Southeast Asia, including the Southeast Asian nations, Japan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, and China. It describes India’s robust economic ties with South Korea; its cordial but substantively sub-par relationship with Japan; and the complex and rapidly developing relations India has with members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), which includes several free trade arrangements and ‘strategic partnerships’. The chapter concludes that India enjoys a ‘soft power’ pull in relations with many Asian nations. But the region is unsentimental and to meet India’s expectations demands more Indian engagement than habitually provided by Delhi.

Keywords:   Indian foreign policy, foreign relations, East Asia, Southeast Asia, South Korea, Japan
